Shek O, Hong Kong
(4.3/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
A contrast to Hong Kong's tall skyscrapers and big business, the seaside village of Shek O shows the island's other side: pleasant beaches, a relaxed pace, and nature to explore. The area is even home to a prehistoric rock carving, depicting geometric designs and animals. Seemingly untouched by the arrival of the British, this little town has a stronger Chinese feel to it, with narrow lanes, colorful houses, and small temples. A hike up to a popular viewpoint affords a panoramic view of the coastline below. To visit Shek O and other attractions in Hong Kong, use our Hong Kong itinerary maker.

  • You wouldn't expect a quaint little village with an excellent beach in a place like HK... but here it is!! Well worth the trek. 
  • 由港鐵筲箕灣站可轉乘紅色小巴或巴士到石澳泳灘,這裡比赤柱少一點遊人,很有小鄉村風情。這裡還有不少富建築特色的私人住宅,走過這石澳大街,可見到一條藍色小橋,是本港著名拍婚照聖地。 
  • Too the MTA and then the number 9 bus. Very easy to get to. Really nice uncrowded beach. I took a nice hike. Stay away from the Thai Chinese restaurant. It was awful.
